miss farnaby


Remembering Geraldine McEwan who was born on this day in 1932 and died on 30 January 2015. Her career spanned over 63 years but I first saw her in ‘Mulberry’ (thanks, Iowa Public Television!) and I absolutely fell in love with her crotchety Miss Farnaby, an elderly lady who gets a reprieve from dying from the son of Death himself and finally learns to live. I even named a beloved (but very snooty kitty with a bit of a prickly personality) after her; it was a perfect fit!
